Autoselect has been working for a while
Authored by: cabo on Sep 03, '02 05:48:08PM
Just so people don't think they have to fiddle with this stuff necessarily: ifconfig en0 on my PBG4 says:
en0: flags=8863 mtu 1500
        inet6 fe80::203:93ff:fe12:3456%en0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4 
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        ether 00:03:93:12:34:56 
        media: autoselect (100baseTX ) status: active
and has been saying similar things (without the inet6 stuff, of course :-) since 10.1.2. My Ethernet switch also believes the PBG4 is full duplex, and there is no mismatch as I'm easily getting 5 MBytes/s out of the thing (haven't run ttcp though). Of course, it's nice you now can influence it via ifconfig (which I haven't verified).

Ditto. My gigabit connections at work are recognized at full duplex (quicksilver and PB G4), and all of my other machines are appropriately setup as full duplex by autoselect. My PB G3 (Lombard model) and my wife's iBook 366, which never had anything better than 10.1 also had full duplex 100MBit connections courtesy of autoselect. Perhaps if you've got bad wiring or a faulty hub/relay configuration there might be a problem but virtually nobody should have to worry about this.

Mine's working properly too.
media: autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>) status: active

Running an 800 Mhz eMac with 10.2.1 connected to a Linksys 8 port Cable/DSL router/switch.
